Woman. Wife. Mom. My three leading roles (not always in that order). Sleep. Sanity. Balance. My three leading challenges. My mission of late – Teach myself to say “So What!?” a whole lot more in parenthood and in life.
Welcome. I’m Briana, mom to two young boys and a baby girl, Everleigh, born June 2014. My oldest son, Camden, turned 5 years old in July (born 2009); My middle son, Holden, turned 3 years old in August (born 2011). I’m a wife who adores and values her husband, but admittedly, is always trying to do a better job of showing it.
We are a gluten-free and dairy-free home, so cooking is both a priority and a pastime. My path to learning about food ingredients and allergies has turned me into an advocate for real food, non-GMO foods, and organics whenever possible.
I’m a breastfeeder, babywearer, co-sleeper/bed-sharer, who practices a fair bit of attachment parenting. These topics permeate my life as a parent, so chances are you’ll see them come up.
I enjoy quality time with my family, yet have sometimes struggled to make the time when juggling a career, too. Following my most recent maternity leave, my job was eliminated (aka layoff) so we’re making changes in our household to see if me staying home is the best thing for everyone. I’m a recovering perfectionist who has always worked full-time outside the home (except for maternity leave), so this is a big transition. Since becoming a parent, I’m learning to throw a little more caution to the wind while aiming to get over many of the mom expectations (most of which are my own).
Join me as I share what I’ve learned along the way, and continue to learn as our lives evolve. I’ll write when I can, but in the meantime you can find me on Instagram for more day-to-day antics.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll stick around!
